A mother of two from Cambridgeshire was diagnosed with cancer after a chance encounter with a family doctor in Cyprus.

Danielle McCulloch from Crowland near Peterborough was getting married on the island, where her grandmother lives, when they bumped into the GP who spotted an unusual lump on her neck.

When she looks back at her wedding photos Danielle says she can see where her neck had swollen because of a tumour.

She's backing a new campaign by Cancer Research UK called Right Now, which highlights the importance of getting symptoms checked by a doctor.
